About me

Currently working for a fast paced, rapidly growing Technology company, heading up Resourcing where I fill numerous vacancies each week. As much as I love the social aspect of my job and the gratitude received from employees/clients/candidates when filling roles, I believe it’s time for myself to start building a career with a company where I can use more of my creativity. My current and previous roles have seen me liaise with candidates, suppliers and clients on a regular basis, which requires incredibly strong communication and interpersonal skills. I produce monthly reports on Resourcing figures to be presented at Board meetings and as a Lead Resourcing Consultant, I am consistent with putting forward suggestions to Practice Managers/Board Members on how we can improve our recruitment game at Agenor. I purchased my first DSLR 13 months ago and have since self taught myself the basics. Photography is now my main hobby and I have absolutely fell in love with taking photographs (whether it be portraits or landscape), looking at photographs of photographers (famous, professional, amateur) and reading articles. If I could gain a role working for a fellow creative who I could look up to, I would be delighted. Fashion has also been a massive part of my world, owning a Fashion & Lifestyle Blog (www.lousayshi.com) which I have been lucky enough to grow a rather healthy following (14K) on Social Media. My blog is a place where I can use my creativity but as previously mentioned, I would love to gain a career working for a brand/company that I can transfer these skills over to. I hope to relocate to London once I have a role set in place and with a 4-week notice, I could be available from as short as 1 months’ time. If you would like me to attend interview at any time, I have the flexibility to do so. Warm Regards, Louise
